From a recovering 'leadershipaholic': our best model is the first one.
With all our sleek ministry models, it's a wonder our churches are declining - until we read Acts 6:4, 'But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the word.'
After a long, sometimes trying ministry journey, Daniel Henderson was relieved to discover what the apostles knew from the start: The main thing must stay the main thing. It worked in their pagan times, and it will in ours.
Old Paths, New Power: Reviving Our Churches through Prayer and the Ministry of the Word calls us back to the tried-and-true: pray and proclaim the word.
Henderson, who leads a growing church revival ministry, guides you through the essentials of sparking a spiritual renaissance:
Be a leader who walks with the Lord
Develop a strong prayer culture in your life and ministry
Preach with unction, dependence, and integrity
Equip every saint for the work of the ministry
Embrace the sufficiency of the gospel
Our churches don't need fresh models and fancy things; they need the Holy Spirit, and He rains down when we pray and proclaim the word. Read Old Paths, New Power and follow God's master plan.
